Air Fryer Bacon Recipe

Once you make this Air Fryer Bacon recipe, it will soon become the ONLY way you'll ever want to cook it!  Bacon is roasted from all sides until the majority of the fat drips off and you're left with ultra crispy and perfectly cooked strips.  Not only is it a healthier method but it's also much faster than cooking in a skillet or baking in the oven - it's ready in just 10 minutes!

  • 4 oz. bacon about 4-5 strips


  1. Heat Air Fryer to 350°F.

  2. Place bacon strips on the metal rack in a single layer. If the bacon is too long to fit or you’d like to get wavy pieces, place your pointer finger underneath a section of it to lift it up. Repeat this another time on the same piece of bacon and do this with all strips.
  3. Cook bacon for 9-10 minutes. Cook a minute less if very thin strips or 1-2 minutes more if really thick strips.
  4. Remove bacon from Air Fryer and place on a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Eat immediately and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

Storage and Reheating

  • To store:  Store bacon in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days.
  • To freeze:  Freeze cooked bacon in a freezer safe container for up to 3-4 months.
  • To reheat:  The best way to reheat bacon is in the Air Fryer.  Add leftover bacon to a 300 degree Air Fryer and cook for 2-3 minutes, or until heated through.  It is not recommended to warm up bacon in the microwave since it will get soggy and lose its crispiness.
